Undergraduate Certificate in Biomedical Engineering
CERTIFICATE CODE - CU02
The Department of Chemical Engineering administers a certificate program in biomedical engineering that is open to all students with appropriate prerequisites, which are: basic biology (BIOL 115), mathematics through MATH 261 (differential equations), CHEM 115, and CHEM 116 and a working knowledge of organic chemistry, specifically the naming conventions for, and knowledge of charge distribution in, organic molecules. Currently, the certificate program consists of six required courses listed below. As other courses are added in the biomedical engineering area, more choices of elective courses will be made available.
|BIOL 235||Human Physiology||3|
|BIOL 236||Human Physiology: Quantitative Laboratory||1|
|BMEG 201||Introduction to Biomedical Engineering||3|
|BMEG 481||Applied Bio-Molecular Modeling||3|
|BMEG 482||Introduction to Tissue Engineering||3|
For chemical engineering undergraduates, the certificate program can be completed with the addition of one additional credit hour (134 hours total). Students wishing to attend medical school will have to take CHEM 234/CHEM 236 (four hours) for a total of 138 credit hours.
